4. Use of Services
4.1 Safe and appropriate use
4.2 Interactions with other Users
You agree that in conjunction with your use of the Services, you will maintain safe and appropriate contact with other Users and other people in the real world. You will not harass, threaten or otherwise violate the legal rights of others. You will not trespass, or in any manner attempt to gain or gain access to any property or location where you do not have a right or permission to be, and will not otherwise engage in any activity that may result in injury, death, property damage, nuisance, or liability of any kind. If you have a dispute with any third party relating to your use of the Services, you release CCV Global (and our directors and voluntary staff) from all claims, demands, liabilities and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes.
4.3 Compliance with Guidelines and Local Law
The Guidelines are based on publicly available guidance from the World Health Organisation (“WHO”) on current best practice with regard to controlling the risk of the novel 2019 coronavirus (Covid-19). CCV Global does not intend the Guidance, or any of the Services, to provide medical or health services, or to provide medical or health advice. Public guidance on how to mitigate the risks of the spread of Covid-19 may change from time to time and while we will make every effort to ensure that the Guidelines are updated to reflect the latest WHO advice, this cannot be guaranteed. By using the Services, you (1) acknowledge and agree that the Services and the Guidelines do not constitute health or medical services, or medical or health advice, and that you will not rely on them as such and (2) to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, you release CCV Global (and our directors and voluntary staff) from all claims, demands, liabilities and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, arising out of any damage, injury, loss or harm that you may suffer as a consequence of complying with the Guidelines.
The governmental response to the COVID-19 pandemic has varied between jurisdictions and continues to change on a day-by-day basis. Our Services are intended to be used in jurisdictions where the freedom of movement of the general public has not been restricted by local laws and regulations or applicable governmental (or other relevant public authority) policy (“Local Law”). Accordingly, Users shall not use our Services in jurisdictions where such use, or the consequences of such use, would result in breach of applicable Local Law and Users are required to comply with Local Law in all respects. By using the Services, Users agree to release CCV Global (and our directors and voluntary staff) from all claims, demands, liabilities and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, arising out of any breach by them of Local Law as a consequence of their utilisation of our Services.
Volunteers are required upon accessing the App to confirm certain information regarding their health in line with WHO guidance around preventing the dissemination of COVID-19. Confirmation of this information is deemed to be given by Volunteers each time they use the Services. Volunteers who cannot, at any time, truthfully give the confirmations requested are required to cease acting as a Volunteer until such time as they can re-confirm compliance with the required confirmations.
4.4 Who May Use Our Services
Children are not permitted to use our Platform. We define children as anyone under 16 years old, or the age needed to consent to the processing of personal data in your country of residence.
